    [Comment From Patrick Britain] What is your favorite street car that you have owned?

    Patrick Long: I'm currently driving a Porsche Cayenne GTS. And a few of your sports car and 911 buffs are probably rolling your eyes! The reason I love this car is because I can drive it like a sports car, but still throw my road bikes in the back, or two of my jet skis on the weekend. Only having one road car means that I can have versatility, but I still can drive hard and fast with the Cayenne.

    Re: Porsche Cayenne GTS

    That car is really growing on me. I might have a closer look on it :-)

    Dear Patrick Long, the only reason I actually roll my eyes, is very simple: not because you drive a Cayenne GTS but because you've chosen the WRONG one. Smiley I never understood the hype about the Cayenne GTS, most owners could have gone for a Cayenne Turbo instead. Now some people may argue that the GTS is more sporty and provides a more direct and "connected" drive feel but I actually never met somebody who was faster in a GTS than in a Turbo. Considering the weight of the Cayenne, the Turbo should actually be the standard engine but I guess the Porsche marketing department did a great job by adding a couple of horses and a slightly stiffer suspension setup, not to forget about more sporty" looks" to make people believe they actually buy the 911 of the Cayenne model line. Smiley

    To each his own I guess... Smiley Smiley

    Re: Porsche Cayenne GTS

    Never got the GTS either, the turbo engine has so much more torque...


    Re: Porsche Cayenne GTS

    Isn't there a 15-20K difference in price between the GTS and a similarly equipped Turbo?


    Re: Porsche Cayenne GTS

    No no, you got it all wrong, the "S" in GTS is just a typo. It should have read the Cayenne GT3.
